Women’s International Science

AAAS International Initiatives include efforts to increase and promote the role of women in science, technology, and engineering (STE). These international efforts complement the “Careers for All” activities underway throughout AAAS. In particular, AAAS is currently seeking to improve STE networks between and among women in the Middle East and North Africa with similar networks in the United States.

To increase and promote the role of women in STE careers and education, current AAAS international information resources include:

International Funding Opportunities for Women in STE
U.S. and other international STE Partnerships with the Middle East and North Africa
Profiles of Women in STE in the Middle East and North Africa
Bibliography for Women in STE in the Middle East and North Africa

AAAS also administered a travel grant program called Women in International Science (WISC) from 2001 – 2003. The final report from this program is available here.
